Review: Wolf Hall | The Charms of Court Life Elude Me

Wolf Hall
Hilary Mantel (2009)

Well, I tried. I really, really wanted to like this book and by all indications, I should have but Thomas Cromwell and his crew continually failed to engaging me. Perhaps my expectations were too high, perhaps I just wasn’t in the right frame of mind. Mostly, I felt as if I was constantly missing the point, reading with little appreciation for who or what was going on. I stuck it out to the half-way point, but just can’t go on.
